The fine has been confirmed in KPL official website. "The committee (IDCC) also rebuked AFC Leopards for failing to help in identifying a particular spectator, who had caused trouble in their league match against Kakamega Homeboyz at Mumias Sports Complex on August 18, 2019.

"The Kenyan Premier League had charged AFC Leopards following incidents of stone throwing by fans attributed to them during the match against Homeboyz. The supporters aimed their missiles at the first assistant referee, Stephen Oduor following a decision he had made against AFC Leopards causing the match to be stopped for about five minutes.

"Oduor sustained a cut on his left thigh that needed medical attention. IDCC consequently ruled that AFC Leopards pay Oduor Sh2, 000 to compensate for his medical expenditure and Sh25, 000 for his pain and suffering."
